You can do no worse than bookmark these two informative posts.

Don't get too hung up about brake calipers as that can apply to pretty much any car if they are not serviced. The snag is....Lexus don't service them as part of routine servicing. They would rather just bolt on a brand new one every now and then.

If you are just a little bit spannery they are really quite easy to do. Or get a reliable indy to do for you...just make sure they use red rubber grease for the slide pins. There are a few write ups on brake servicing within this forum.

Generally speaking the SEL type is the best spec IS250.

Happy hunting

Note; As mentioned above the SE-L model spec has indeed the highest level of equipment and there were only a couple of options available ( ie, ACC, Moonroof and multi-media ICE) the SE-L is easily identified by its wood ( and it is real wood, highly laquered and polished supplied by Yamaha, The musical instrument makers!) inserts in the passenger compartment and by the rear electrically operated sun shade ( not even the ISF had one of those!)
